Optus releases Galaxy Tab 10.1 pricing

news National telco Optus has announced the addition of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 to its tablet range, just in time for Christmas. Starting from this week, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 will be on offer at the Optus online store bundled with a variety of plans for householders and small and medium businesses (SMBs).

The announcement comes a couple of weeks after Samsung won a key patent court battle against Apple, which had filed suit in Australia to block the launch of the Galaxy Tab in early August. The Galaxy Tab 10.1 is regarded as a competitor in the tablet market to Apple’s iPad 2 tablet.

Customers can sign up for the Galaxy Tab 10.1 on the $49 Optus Tablet Plan, which provides 4GB of mobile broadband data over a 24-month period (minimum total cost is $1176).

Optus said the Galaxy Tab 10.1 features advanced business capabilities that SMB customers can benefit from—the $19.95 mobile broadband plan offers 2GB of mobile broadband data and 24/7 business technical support (minimum total cost is $958.80). The plan also allows Optus mobile customers to share data between their tablet and mobile service plans, giving SMBs the choice of using either of their mobile devices to remain connected while on the move.

Managing Director, Optus Small and Medium Business Group, Rohan Ganeson said, “The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 has been highly anticipated and we’re excited to be bringing it to our customers in time for Christmas.” Ganeson stressed on the importance of businesses staying connected with whatever is required to maintain smooth and competitive operations. “The GALAXY Tab 10.1 on the Optus Open Network provides our customers with a portable platform to do just that. With our 24 hours a day, seven days a week technical support team backing up our SMB customers, there’s no greater reason to choose Optus this holiday season.”

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is available for online purchase from December 21 from the Optus website and through selected Telechoice stores. More information on the pricing and availability details of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is available on the Optus website. SMBs can check for more information on business plans here.
